Continuing the theme of end of year donations to favored transhumanist, pro-technology and healthy life extension causes, I should point you all to the $40,000 challenge grant over at the Foresight Nanotech Institute:
Thanks to a generous $40,000 Challenge Grant, every donation you give to Foresight is matched dollar for dollar up to this amount. This Challenge is for a limited time only. Please give now and together we can build an exciting future.
Donations received by Foresight between now and December 31, 2005, qualify as a 2005 tax deduction to the full extent permitted by U.S. law. For extra tax savings, you may also donate appreciated stock and avoid capital gains.
Donate by mail -- checks postmarked by January 31, 2006 (Dec. 31 for 2005 deductions) are also eligible for matching funds.
The Foresight Nanotech Institute's work encompasses advocacy for the development of advanced nanomedicine - a path towards radical life extension and the postponement of aging. Foresight is also an organizational member of the The Three Hundred, donating to the MPrize for anti-aging research.
If you are interested in finding out more about nanomedicine and healthy life extension, you should start with a recent interview with nanotechnology researcher and radical life extension advocate Robert A. Freitas. Another good resource is the Chris Phoenix article entitled Nanotechnology and Life Extension. Get reading!
